Thomas Kinkade

Thomas Kinkade died yesterday. Thomas Kinkade was the artist who painted all of the pictures of cottages in the woods on the sunniest day ever. He was famous for painting pictures that were flooded with light and selling them everywhere and on everything. Critics of Thomas Kinkade wrote off his painting as mall art and kitsch, as if selling tons of painting to all sorts of people was the worst thing in the world. Thomas Kinkade's technique of filling a painting with light is a descendant of the Hudson River School of Painting. They sold a ton of paintings too. Thomas Kinkade also painted a series of Disney paintings.
